Poped Ceiling

Your ceiling is moving due to the foundation of your house moving, shifting, or settling.

Compared to the weight of the home, the forces of gravity, and the pressures on the foundation, the sheetrock ceiling is weak. There is no way to fix the ceiling so it will not crack again without first addressing the reason it is being damaged.
